East Lake H.S.
THIS WEEK’S FEATS:
East Lake bounced back from a loss to rival PHU with three straight victories last week, thanks in large part to the solid, consistent play of its senior libero.
Powers is one of the returning Eagles trying to prove that the loss of nine players from last year’s region finalist isn’t too much to overcome. East Lake is attempting to continue a school-record for consecutive playoff appearances. Another trip in 2013 would make seven straight.
“MaKenzie Powers, our libero, she’s the rock. She’s somebody I can go to and I know she’s going to get the job done.” – East Lake coach Michael Morris on his senior captain.
